Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm a network admin with strong Windows and Cisco skill. I've been struggling to learn UNIX by just jumping in and assisting with the administration of our Red Hat servers. I'm am learning a lot but feel like I have no foundation to build my knowledge on. Can anyone recomend a good book to learn UNIX fundimentals? I read Linux for dummies but didn't like it. I don't think I'm really part of the Dummies demographic.
'This book covers GNU/LINUX system administration, for popular distributions like RedHat and Debian, as a tutorial for new users and a reference for advanced administrators. It aims to give concise, thorough explanations and practical examples of each aspect of a UNIX system. Anyone who wants a comprehensive text on (what is commercially called) "LINUX'' need look no further--there is little that is not covered here.'
Linux newbies are supposed to read it cover to cover.
Rute, is definetely your best bet, a friend of mine is following a linux course, they don't use coursematerial, all they have is Rute!, I got a copy of it and am reading it as well. It is written in a very comprehensible language. To me it is now as a bible...
I personally use the "Redhat Linux 9 Bible" for all my Linux needs. It's a very thick book, and a little on the costly side, however it covers just about everything the average user, and most power users, will ever need to know.
